  • Fantasy Congress League

    Have you guys checked this out yet?

    http://www.fantasycongress.com/public/WhatIsFC.jsp

    I made a team for us- "TacticalGamer.com". The password is "tactical". I know all of you political junkies want a chance to draft yourself a winning congress. Go take a look!

    From their site:
    "FantasyCongress.com works just like fantasy sports leagues except instead of sports players, you draft politicians who receive scores based on their legislation, votes, news, election metrics and other measures. This fun, educational experience lets you trade and bench politicians."

        So wait... you get points for passing legislation, good or bad?

        I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~

            Passing legislation would be their job...


            I'm in the league, BTW.

            I'm not clear on how this deal works, though. Like Luna and Apo both have Ted Kennedy in their roster. Do they both get to keep him? Is there a cost for having Hillary Clinton on your roster instead of Joe Schmoe?

                        No, passing GOOD legislation and weeding out the bad stuff is their job, although as you can clearly see they fail in all areas regarding technology. You would get points for them passing the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, and yet it's done more harm then good in its lifetime, as was predicted from the beginning.
